More Windows 10 Answers: How Activation Will Work on an Upgrade

It’s been a busy week in Redmond, and Microsoft today releases two more Windows 10 Insider Preview builds, one for Fast ring and one for Skip Ahead.

“Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18362 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring,” Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar announced.

Given how close we are to 19H1 being finalized, you may not be surprised to discover that there’s only one major fix in this build: Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in the Connect app crashing on launch for some Insiders. Also, Microsoft just released build 18361 yesterday. It’s getting close.

But this build isn’t today’s only surprise.

“Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing 20H1 Build 18860 to Windows Insiders who have opted into Skip Ahead,” Ms. Sarkar also announced. “Remember – these builds are from the 20H1 development branch.”

And this build does contain one new feature: SwiftKey’s Typing Intelligence functionality is now available in more languages. Beyond that, it’s just fixes and a few known issues.

Keep rebootin’!
